<< Allergic to Clay? >>

Yes - I had the worst contact allergy to clay many years ago - horrible red
cracking
rash on the parts of my hands that put any pressure on the clay. Did the
"Femi-
Nazi" that taught my class let me out of it - No - allergy or not I had to
continue.
and on the wheel which made it the worst. plastic gloves did not help -
Years later while teaching a childrens class in clay I opened a very Ripe
bag of
clay and the mold spores flew out and grabbed every part of my respiratory
system-
that was the beginning of the mold allergies. What may help is grapefruit
seed
extract in capsule form or liquid and Megadolphilous. Wish I had known about
those
two when I first became exposed. Peace to all soon Roberta
